The Intrastat reporting will change as of 1 January 2022

In line with the Government regulation on the implementation of certain provisions of the Customs Act in the area of statistics of 23 August 2021, the Intrastat reporting will change with effect from 1 January 2022. The new Government regulation has been prepared in cooperation with the Czech Statistical Office and will replace the existing legislation, i.e. Regulation no. 244/2016 Coll. The main reason for the replacement of the existing legislation is the extensive change of the directly applicable EU legislation in the area of statistics relating to the trading of goods between the Member States.

What effect has this change had on the administrative practice of the Financial Administration? And is it possible to require a higher interest also in closed cases?
